How to Holiday Spritz, According to Team Argaux
Who says spritzes are strictly for summer? As the holiday season approaches, our palates crave something refreshing, flavor-packed, and noted with a tinge of bitterness – enter our go-to Holiday Spritz recipe.
[Note: At Argaux, we seek out our liqueurs and spirits with the same mentality that we do our wines. Beyond tasting delicious, sustainability is always placed at the forefront of our search, with a strong preference for organic farming and low-intervention production methods.]
Introducing our Holiday Spritz Kit, perfect for carrying you through happy hours, holiday parties, and family gatherings alike. Our Holiday Spritz Kit features our newest find, NV Volume Primo Vermouth, as well as our go-to NV Sorelle Bronca Extra Dry Prosecco. Crafted from a blend of Moscato and Grillo Siciliano grapes, Volume Primo’s Mediterranean-style Vermouth is macerated with bittering elements such as wormwood, gentian, sage, chamomile, and vanilla. The flavor-packed nature of this aromatized wine makes it the perfect pick for mixing with bubbly Prosecco, especially during winter weather months. Think of it like Campari meets Aperol, but way less industrial (and much more delicious).
To celebrate the holidays in style, our team has put together a convenient Holiday Spritz Kit, perfect for a season full of tasty cocktails. Each kit contains one bottle of NV Volume Primo Vermouth and one bottle of bubbly Prosecco.
How to Make the Perfect Spritz
At Argaux, we like to keep things easy, which is why we use the 3-2-1 method to make the perfect Spritz at home. Simply add three parts Prosecco, two parts Vermouth, and one part sparkling water into a large wine glass with ice cubes, stir, and garnish with a slice of orange (optional). This quick and easy-to-remember method ensures the perfect balance between sweet and bitter, which is why the 3-2-1 ratio has become our go-to Spritz method.
About the Wine
We believe that all wine, including those destined for cocktails, should taste delicious and be produced responsibly, which is why we’ve chosen to include NV Sorella Bronca Extra Dry Prosecco in our Holiday Spritz Kit. Crafted from organically-farmed grapes, this refreshing bottle of sparkling jumps with flavors of citrus, ripe peach, white flowers, and almond skin.
Alternative Uses for NV Volume Primo Vermouth
Simply swap in NV Volume Primo Vermouth in any cocktail creations where you’d normally use other brands of aromatized wine. Splash with some soda water or simply sip solo on the rocks to truly enjoy the mosaic of flavors in this small-production aperitif. From our Team Argaux family to yours, we wish you a happy, healthy, and spritz-filled holiday season!
